Whatdoes WMG look for in a Painter?
Theideal candidate would be someone local. For the right candidate thatis willing to relocate to Raleigh, the earning potential is over$2000 and goes up from there!
Preferablya candidate would have extensive painting experience and preferablysome experience painting for others. Painters must paint to a highstandard to be considered for our service.
“Whoare you to judge my work! You don't know me!”
Greatquestion. Since 2011, I've built WMG into a business that allowed meto leave my full time job to be a full time painter/hobbyist, and nowI employ multiple artists that also work full time on commissionwork. In the first quarter of 2017 WMG grossed just over $70,000 insales. This year is going to be our biggest ever and we are growingevery day.
Infact, work is rolling in faster than we can paint and that's whywe're looking for new brushes for hire to call White Metal Gamestheir studio! Furthermore, we have done extensive research into ourcompetitors, so we know what we're up against.
Thatbeing said, if you don't like having your work constructivelycriticized, this is not the job for you. We will evaluate your workregularly. We will be candid about the quality level and yourturnaround speed, and if your work does not meet our expectations, wewill part ways as friends.
Whatit means to be a 'Pro-Painter'
Pro-Paintedis a term that gets a lot of flak in the industry. We call ourselvespro-painters because we paint for a living. In fact, I've writtenextensively on the topic.
Notevery model we paint is painted to a high standard, just like notevery client we service has a high budget. At White Metal Games weoffer several painting 'levels' to suit every clients needs.
Ourlevels are arranged by precious metals, with Bronze being the lowestand Gold being our 'pro-painted' standard. We also have Platinumwhich is display quality.
Whatwill I be painting? What is the average project size at WMG? Lots ofthings! We paint everything from board games to skirmish games, RPGfigures, and more!
Theaverage project is either a large, low level project (such as 30-40figures at Silver Level) or a smaller number of high level figures(such as between 1-10 Gold Figures). In increasing cases, we aregetting more high level large projects, such as Electrum armies withcharacters painted to Gold Standard and above!
Whatcan I expect to make as a Painter?
Thatdepends on several factors. Depending your speed, experience, andlevel of painting will depend how much you make. So contact ustoday!
Thanksfor your interest and we look forward to hearing from you!
